Once upon a time,
There was an island where all feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Vanity, Knowledge, Richness, and Love.
Theirs was a contented existence until one day to everyone’s dismay it was discovered that the island was sinking. Everyone was told they must leave. So the feelings all prepared their boats and started leaving their beloved island.
Love was the only one that stayed, behind. Love so cared for the island home that he wanted to stay until they were sure that the island was really sinking.
When Love realized that the island was really sinking, he decided to ask for help.
Richness was passing by Love in a beautiful boat. Love said, “Richness, can you take me with you?” Richness answered,”No, I can’t. There are a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no room in here for you.”
Love decided to ask Vanity who was passing by, “ Vanity, please help me!” “ I can’t help you Love. You are all wet and will damage my boat,” Vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so Love asked for help, “Sadness, let me go with you.” “ Oh...Love, I am so sad that I can’t help anyone. I prefer to be alone!”
Happiness passed Love too. She was too happy to notice when Love called her!
Suddenly, there was a voice, “ Come Love, I will take you.” It was a wise man.
Love became very happy that he even forgot to ask the name of the wise man. When they arrived to safe grounds, Love asked Knowledge who was the wise man.
“It was time.” “Time? But why did Time help me?”
“Because only Time is capable of understanding such a great Love.”
Remember that when things may look the bleakest, and when all appears abandon, Time is capable of solving anything.
Things may not have a solution today, but tomorrow you may find one!
Thought I'd start with a nice 'feel good' story first.
It has been a while since I up-dated or rather added to my profile and I thought it was about time I did. I am born n bred from Edinburgh, origins are from Pakistan. Some say I sound like Lorraine Kelly but I'll perhaps leave that up to you to decide.
I have been married before for a short time and was unfortunately not blessed with any children. Due to my age and being realistic, I don't believe I will have any (biological) children now, but I am in the process of adopting as a single adopter so if that is not something that suits you then I understand.
I have worked for the NHS for a number of years; within the Learning Disability (or Intellectual Disability as the name is evolving to) and also in Forensics. Presently, I run one of the Psychological Services that supports people with behaviours that challenge among other mental health disorders. Absolutely love my job and no two days are ever the same.
Like most on this site, I too am looking for companionship / marriage prospect. I feel there are the lucky / blessed few who have managed to love and be loved back and I guess that is all we would hope for in this existence.
Religion is important to me and whilst I do have faith and practice, I would say I don't do it as often as I should. This is something that I would like to work on in the future.
I am a glass half full kind of person and attempt to have a positive happy outlook in life. I'm a great believer in karma and like the old Irish saying 'what is meant for you will not go by you'.
Thank you for reading my profile and wish you all the best in this search.
I seem to be getting a few messages from people who are vastly younger than me. Whilst that is really quite flattering (or perhaps I don't look my age!), I'm afraid I am a realist and do believe vast age differences matter. I would consider a slight age difference but nothing more than that. And yes, "slight" is subjective so please use your own judgement.
Also, I understand that some of us (not all, thankfully) may live in a rat race and time is precious (see my story above if you've missed the point), however, sending a simple courteous message initially before requesting to view my pictures will mean that the likelihood of me pressing 'accept' will be greater.
My profile picture is visible; it is a recent one taken.
I will reject any request to view my other pictures unless you've messaged me first.
The million dollar / pound / euro question...
My wish list is short (I think)... I'm looking for someone who is honest, trustworthy and kind. A sense of humour would also be a good trait; being able to laugh and make others laugh is good for the mind and soul.
Things I find ugly are arrogance and being rude.
Things I'm most attracted to are humility, patience and kindness.
If you are either already in Scotland or are fed up with the way certain parts of the UK are heading and wish to move up to Scotland then that is a huge bonus ;-)
